the support bar doesn't seem to fit. Can you give any more details please. Does it go in the grooves of the walls of the fridge or does it go on the cover itself ?
Answer Riselle, the support rod 2172748 is inserted in the channel on the underside of the cover 2314549 it's located in the front edge. Once the assembly is installed in the refrigerator the weight and the wall supports will hold the rod and assembly in place, and the rod will keep the cover from "drooping" in the center, unless overloaded.
